From a love of corvids and entomology, an interest in Norse mythology and folklore, I have created a collection of bottles with a twist, exploring the dark & light sides of life, for some your worst nightmare for some pure pleasure. I take old poison, scientific and apothecary bottles, make moulds and slip cast them in parian or porcelain clay. They may be decorated with oxides and waxes and my own illustrations of insects, plants, birds, text and spells and other delights even including the odd dodo!

Some vessels will become more sculptural with cascades of porcelain flowers and plants. Some may have individually sculpted porcelain birds and creatures mounted on hand turned stoppers and sometimes finished with either my own sterling silver or copper embellishments or repurposed items thus making every piece totally unique.
